Moon God and celebrity ball game hero

One of the sporty HERO-TWINS. With his brother HUNAHPU he took part in the Underworld Cup Final and totally thrashed the opposition.

With many exciting adventures under his belt he was elevated to Moon God. Every day when the sun goes down, he tosses the stars across the dark empty heavens. This is good practice for his throwing arm.

The name XBALANQUE is pronounced "Shh-ballankay" in case you were wondering. He's also known as God CH, which is much easier to spell.

To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites.
